The companies have become a key parameter, especially in the global economy. The size of global companies closely correlated with the decrease of vulnerabilities, with higher resistance to economic shocks occurred along the time and with their bigger chances of success in certain markets. Companies aim not only to optimize their size, but also to strengthen the global production networks, affording them a better competitive position, in a mighty competitive environment and under the pressure of quick development of the technological environment. The size of an organization has become a barrier that stops its entry into the sector, higher than profitability, which explains why some corporations have focused, in recent times, more on strengthening their position abroad, although their economic performance does not justify this endeavor.

Evans and Richardson (2007), contend that globalized economic environment is complex and changes from time to time and this places a heavy responsibility on multinationals and other business enterprises. They are forced to adapt in order to deal with these factors for the benefit of their organizations. A company cannot ignore political issues when assessing the business environment in which it operates because it affects government policies such as licensing, regulation and taxation, which have a direct consequence on the activities of a business enterprise (Evans, & Richardson, 2007).

When the strategies lead to a superior performance of a company relative to its competitors, then the company is said to be at a competitive advantage. This is a case study of Federal Express, in the small package express delivery industry. It
